The Covid-19 pandemic has changed the way we all work. While we hope to return to the classroom soon, Focus recognises we need to adapt. As a result, we have re-designed many of our most popular courses for online delivery ensuring our clients can still access top quality training from a trusted provider with over 20 yrs in the field.
Our main challenge was to design online interactive and engaging alternatives to our traditional delivery method and we can announce that we have achieved this. These courses have been designed at three levels so you can choose to take just one module, jump straight to a higher level if you already have experience, or combine modules together for an end-to-end training experience. We have recently delivered online to:
